San Juan (Agenzia Fides) – His Exc Mgr. José Dolores Grullon Estrella, Bishop of the Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana, announced the 60th celebrations for the anniversary of the founding of the diocese, created on September 25, 1953 with the title of "Prelature Nullius", as it did not have a native clergy at that time.
According to the information Fides received from the Dominican Republic, the activities to commemorate the anniversary will be held from September 24 to 28, in communities and districts of the three provinces that make up the Diocese: San Juan, Azua and Elias Piña. Activities have also been organized where 72 missionaries from each parish will participate, re-launching once again the Continental Mission,"with even greater momentum to continue the mission that we have been pursuing for all these 60 years", the Bishop concluded .
